My work has been published in MELUS: Multiethnic Literature of the US, American Quarterly, Television & New Media, Mizna: Prose, Poetry, and Art Exploring Arab America, The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Postcolonial Studies, JAAS: Journal of Asian American Studies, and the Global Asian American Popular Cultures anthology.
I am currently completing my book manuscript, The Refugee Aesthetic: Relocating Southeast Asian America, which is under contract with Temple University Press. A historical study of the politics involved in aestheticizing refugee experience, this book examines why a number of Southeast Asian American authors have recently embraced the refugee identity as a transformative position.
